Between Zambia, already eliminated, and Algeria already qualified, the goals (3-3) were there on Thursday during the 5th day of the CAN 2021 qualifiers in Group H. title and qualified since the 4th day, Zambia who still had a very small hope saw it fly after the victory of Zimbabwe a little earlier in front of Botswana (1-0). The Chipolopolos, African champions in 2012, will miss their third consecutive CAN after their absence in 2017 and 2019. Thursday, they certainly had the heart to succeed in their exit against Algeria. But it started badly with two goals in five minutes from the Fennecs, Rachid Ghezzal (19th) and Islam Slimani (25th). Patson Daka will reduce the score (34th) and Cletus Chama will equalize in the second period (52nd). It was just before Slimani’s double (55th). The Zambians will not give up and will manage to snatch the point of the draw thanks to Daka again who transforms a penalty in the 80th minute.
